Player will load but reports error 4001 "could not open media file"

This only happens on PC running Win7 64-bit with IE 8 32-bit

I can launch the wmv directly from the path..say...http://www.mydomain.com/silverlightvideos/alpha.wmv

But silverlight gives the above error...

That was just an example. Problem is not with the site or link....I can view the video through Silverlight ok in Windows XP and other Windows 7 64-bit (with IE8 32-bit) PCs.
Its just this one PC with Win7-64..However it works if I disable UAC.
But on the other PCs it works with UAC enabled

I have Zonealarm installed on the PC with the problem, but when I disable ZA it still wont work. I will try uninsatiing ZA and see i it helps

Yes maybe Zonealarm.
When you still have problems reset the IE (or Browser) settings.

Had the same issue ones.

Good luck

Uninstalled ZA. Problem still exists. But when I disable UAC then it will play. I think its an issue to where it caches the file and UAC does not give it access since I have moved several data and cache folders to another drive. I guess for now I will work with it with UAC disabled and ZA Enabled :)

Thanks for your response.

I dont believe this can be resolved without me putting all Windows data/cache/temp settings back to their default locations. I am awarding Leonie points cause I feel resetting IE settings to default is part of the Windows reset.
